What’s Ongoing at Christ Church?

• Christ Church needs additional videographers & social media communication assistants for Sunday worship services (both languages) and special events; training provided.

• A Children’s Ministry team met this week to discuss ways to engage our children and youth through the upcoming months. We welcome (and need) additional team members. Toddlers - 5th graders should gather at the colorful room on the ground floor every Sunday at 10:55. They will return to their families before Holy Eucharist. Children’s bulletins and crayons and paper are available every Sunday morning for anyone who wants/needs to doodle during the service.

• Rev. Elisabeth & Mariana Garza will offer a bilingual girls’ retreat for girls ages 5th-8th grades on Saturday, March 26th, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m., at the church and rectory. The retreat will include snacks, games, & spiritual conversation. Please contact Rev. Elisabeth at lizzy_sinclair1110@yahoo.com to register.

• Do you wish to receive Christ Church’s weekly email updates? Or, would you like to schedule an appointment with Rev. Elisabeth or Padre Germán? Please complete a registration form from the table at the back of the church, and indicate your need.

• We welcome children in worship services! However, for COVID safety reasons, we request families with unvaccinated children (&/or adults) to sit outdoors. Parents, please keep your children close to you throughout the service, including during the Eucharist, and consider bringing quiet toys, stuffed animals, &/or books to keep your children engaged. If you need a quiet space in which to give your children a snack, change their diapers, etc., you are welcome to use the nursery.
